Hope this letter finds you well.
The NJJLL wants to inform members on what we have been up to since the spring. We’ve been meeting monthly and have been in contact with other league like ours throughout the country, with U.S. Lacrosse facilitating these meetings through ZOOM or Go to Meetings.
In June, we had our executive board elections. Nick Spagnoletti has replaced George Loforte. We welcome Nick to the board and thank George for his commitment to our league.
We realize there is still uncertainty regarding our upcoming season. Spring is fast approaching and we want to be ahead of it as much as possible. With that in mind we have created a Return to Play committee.
Return to Play will focus on resources and protocol that will get us safely back on the field this spring. This will be a topic during our monthly meetings, and we’ll update our progress in emails and on our website.
In addition, we have created a Diversity and Inclusion committee that will address important aspects of U.S. Lacrosse’s mission. The committee will focus on assisting underserved areas by starting programs or helping existing programs thrive.
The other goal of this committee is ensuring that any child who plays in the NJJLL doesn’t feel anxiety over being the only one on the field of a certain race, ethnicity, religion or gender. U.S. Lacrosse is providing us with the tools to address these objectives. Please go to https://www.uslacrosse.org/diversity-inclusion/best-practices-resources
We have also expanded our advisory council to help us be more proactive with Diversity and Inclusion, and we are asking your help. Please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or me directly at email@example.com.
Finally, you may have received emails from your conference coordinators with regards to scheduling early. Please respond to your coordinators with any changes your program may have.
